Seals and buckles
Seals and buckles all have their own specific properties. With a seal splice, you achieve a high-quality and proper lock of your strapping. The plastic and metal buckles are used in manual tightening. The metal buckles offer you the possibility to tighten extra afterwards. Even though a buckle does not offer the same guarantee as a seal or heat seal, it has the large advantage that you don't require any further equipment. If the traction of a strap is not enough and the strap is able to slip through the buckle, a seal is the best solution.
This depends strongly on your situation. By using a seal you have more certainty about the lock. Seals and buckles are available in various finishes. In general one may state that the sealing forms the weakest point of the strapping. This is expressed in "percentage break strength". If this is 85% and the original break strength of the strap is 200 daN (decaNewton), the final break strength is 0.85 x 200 = 170 daN.
For the manual tightening and sealing of plastic strapping. Available for 13 and 16 mm strapping width
For the manual tightening and sealing of plastic strapping. Available for 13, 16, 19, 25 and 40 mm strapping width.
Clasp to be used in combination with composite strapping with a width of 35 mm. Often used for securing goods. The system strength amounts to approximately 2500daN.
Clasp to be used in combination with composite strap with a width of 50 mm. Often used for securing goods. The system strength amounts to approximately 3000 daN
Clasp to be used in combination with composite strap with a width of 50 mm. Often used for securing goods. The system strength amounts to approximately 8000 daN
This is a variation of the open sticker seal. A heavier finished (galvanized) seal. These seals may be applied before or after tightening, depending on the system used. Suitable for use with combi-devices. Your own printing is also possible.
Suitable for: 13, 16, 19, 25, and 32 mm.
Suitable for use in a manual device, type contispan manual (heavy). Profiled against slipping of the strap.
Applicable for PP and PET.
Suitable for use in a manual device with sealing cartridge, type Contistrap CM61 (refer to paragraph on strapping manual equipment).
Contimeta can also help you with other seals upon request.
